Dear Governor Schwarzenegger –
Today is my 40th birthday.
Depending on who is talking, I am either happily married with two kids and a loving spouse, or a 40-year-old bachelor living with my buddy and two bastard children.
Anybody who has taken the time to know me understands that I am anything but a “bachelor” and my kids are anything but “bastard.” My friends, family, co-workers and Democratic legislators know that I am in every sense “married with children”.
Why, Governor, do you and your fellow Republicans continue to bury your collective heads in the sand and pretend gay relationships don’t exist? I exist, I am gay, I am Amercian, I have earned the freedom to marry – yet it is blocked by you and you alone.
You can do something about this. Tell your party and the courts that there is nothing wrong with gay marriage. I don’t want to turn 50 and still be unmarried.
